Newton Lodge Columns


The four pillars which form the basis for this seating area in Hyde Park are the only remains of Newton Lodge. The Lodge was the home of the Ashton family who gave the park to the people of Hyde in 1902. When the park was refurbished in 2000 the pillars and the two benches were used to provide a setting for the memorial stone "Lest We Forget" which had previously lain in one of the gardens.

A closer view of the memorial stone can be seen on Hyde DP Xtra.

A closer view of one of the benches can be seen on Ackworth born, gone West.
